MOUNTAIN TOWN, USA — A group of ski town roommates were surprised and weirded out Friday when they discovered a strange, hairy man poaching their couch, smoking their herb and eating their food without permission.
The roommates discovered the stranger after returning home from a raft trip on the Colorado River, and according to one of the rent-paying tenants, the Guy on the Couch was “pretty chill, but smelled like BO mixed with dog shit.”
When asked who the fuck he was and why he was taking domestic liberties with their weed, beer and food, 24-year-old Guy on the Couch explained simply that “Jerry said it was cool.”
However, as of press time, none of the confused and semi-frightened roommates could confirm any relation to the mysterious and potentially made-up “Jerry.”
“Who the fuck is Jerry?” pissed-off roommate Danny Ware, 23, demanded of TGR during an interview. “I’m sure Guy on the Couch is really nice, but he won’t stop hitting on my girlfriend, and it’s making us very uncomfortable."
In their absence he’d clogged the toilet and defiled their hot tub/master bedroom with another uninvited, nocturnal guest.
After recovering from the shock of finding a stranger in their home, the roommates decided to give Guy on the Couch a shot, only to discover that in their absence he’d clogged the toilet and defiled their hot tub/master bedroom with another uninvited, nocturnal guest.
“I met her at the bar down the street,” Guy on the Couch told TGR. “But I couldn’t tell her the truth that I’m homeless, unemployed and haven’t done laundry or taken a shower in four weeks, so I did what any dirtbag would do, and told her I owned the house and just rent out the extra rooms for cash, because, ya know, people need housing.”

As fall fades and snow paints the landscape, countless mountain folk begin to feel the existential tug of winter. But there’s one type of outdoor enthusiast who’s commitment trumps all the rest. Masters of the art of discomfort, these individuals are known by many names: vagrant, gypsy, transient, bohemian, but most of the time, these restless wanderers prefer their given moniker: The Dirtbag. Styling out destitution like a badge of honor, poverty hasn’t looked this good since the Buddha
Zac Efron's dream of becoming a pro-skier is temporarily on hold. While we don't actually have any evidence that he has (had?) aspirations of becoming a pro, who wouldn't want to ski for a living? Either way, the Wildcats' team captain is sadly laid up following an ACL tear. While in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, Efron went on a guided-catskiing tour which ended in injury. Don't worry Zac, the TGR crew feels your pain and would like you to know that we're all in this together.
Those living at the fringes of the American Dream are most likely to shake up the system. And those that live to ski are decidedly living at the fringes of the American Dream. Jason Levinthal, founder of Line Skis and former CEO of Full Tilt boots, undoubtedly lives to ski. Levinthal’s dossier is, in a word, stacked: X Games athlete and medalist; twin-tip pioneer; veteran of the ski industry trenches; serial entrepreneur. But most importantly, like any self-starter with a nose for success,
